Today was my last day in school! Now I have 4 days of during the Easter holidays and than I am going straight back to my internship at the Helsinki City Theater.

I have been quite busy this week. I finished up a sofa for a customer and finally, after almost a year, my own bench. The top can be taken off and I am storing our winter scarfs, hats, mittens, as well as a few of my handbags in it. I made the seat in "chesterfield upholstery" style. I also finished up Emma's Sampler.I finally sewed it up to a cushion yesterday. Of course I had to place it on my brand new bench. It goes so well together. The Mr. was as well positively surprised when he got home yesterday.

While getting already in the holiday mood yesterday evening, I also started a new stitching project. But it is not my new chart "The Good Neighbor", it is supposed to be stitched with silk thread and I don't have it yet in my stash.
I started stitching "Little Moon Welcome" from Brooke's Books. Usually the designs by Brooke are a bit too cute for my taste, but with this Welcome Sampler I literally fell in love. And the best thing of all is, that it is a freebie.
